After five continents and fifteen countries, I can say that I have never had more people tell me to “be careful” than when I told them I was moving to Brazil!
These are the same people who warned me “not to drink the water” when I moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico
New Mexico is in the USA folks, that should tell you the level of quality information most people have about their own country, much less the rest of the world.
Are the legends about Brazil & The Dominican Republic true!? We sat down and really open up life in our new countries as Expats and Immigrants are anything like we’ve been told!
